At this moment I am testing my OpenStack environment. It's just a proof of concept, but it's on older hardware. For every node I've got a system with a quad core (no HT) and 8GB RAM. Now I want to see how this proof of concept behaves with real life loads. Also, i would like to see what kind of load my controller can handle. The question with these tests i like to answer is: "At what kind of user load do i have to add another controller node/network node". So what would be the ratio number of users - number of controllers and network nodes.

At this moment I found Rally. I have it up and running, but didn't do any tests with it. Which test do I have to run to answer my question(s)?

Thank you.
